Sexuality and Boudoir Photography

Monique Bearce Model Session 059 900x601 Sexuality and Boudoir Photography

Last night I happened across a conversation asking about how being a boudoir photographer affects your own sexuality, or how your sexuality affects your boudoir work, and it really inspired me to take a deep look at myself and really try to understand how the two connect for me.

Shooting boudoir is like being a Doctor to me, when I see clients nude (or nearly nude) regardless of gender, it does not affect me in a sexual way. I don’t look at them while they are changing (if they opt to not use the bathroom), and I don’t look at their body unless I’m looking THROUGH the camera, in which case I am only looking at angles, light, shape, etc. None of it is sexual.

Shower Boudoir – Our Newest Set at the Studio

Brittany Sisco Shower 071 1 900x600 Shower Boudoir   Our Newest Set at the Studio

 

We are always trying to find ways to mix it up at the studio, and our newest set is probably our most creative yet! 

No, we didn’t put in new plumbing and install a shower, but you’d sure think we did wouldn’t you?

Summer Session Schedule

Lizzy Cox 041 900x600 Summer Session Schedule

This Summer we are mixing things up a bit and trying something new! 

We know how hard it can be for Mom’s to find free time during the Summer while school is out, so we are changing up our schedule some to allow for more flexibility! 

This year we will be introducing Sunday Themed Sessions! 

These sessions will be held on predetermined dates through the summer (dates below) and each date will be dedicated to a specific theme! These themes were voted on by members of our Ladies Only VIP group (Join Here!) and we think they are going to be an absolute BLAST! 

There will only be room for 4 ladies on each of our Theme days, so don’t hesitate to book your spot! These sessions will include professional hair and makeup (with lashes application), and will be limited to one wardrobe/outfit and a 2 hour time frame (including hair and makeup). Because these sessions will be structured this way, they are priced slightly lower than our regular full sessions (which are still available on Wednesday afternoons through the Summer, for those who prefer our regular experience!)

“I don’t look like the girls on your website” and other nonsense I hear

30629797 10210849609748899 6308589513601974272 o 900x600 I dont look like the girls on your website and other nonsense I hear

Seriously, I have heard it all. 

“I don’t look like the girls on your website”, “I don’t know how to look sexy”, “I don’t know how to pose”. 

First of all…. You don’t have to look like the girls on my website, because you look like you and that is exactly who you SHOULD look like! The girls on my website are their own individual people and that’s who they look like. 

Second of all, you don’t need to know how to pose OR how to look sexy because that is MY job!

Exist In Photos

Weeks002 Exist In Photos

 

The last two days have been heartbreaking and overwhelming for our family. Yesterday my family lost this gorgeous woman, wife, mother. My cousin Desiree Strout was just 28 and on her way to give birth to her third baby (and first son) when they hit a patch of black ice and their truck rolled. She was killed in the crash and her baby boy is still in critical condition. Her husband, Harry Weeks, is in stable condition but has a long road ahead of him in terms of his emotional and physical recovery. Their oldest daughter, (8) who was with them, suffered minor injuries and was released later in the day, and their other daughter (2 1/2)  was with family and safe.
